GeForce GTX 480 3-way SLI review -
VGA performance: Anno 1404 - Dawn of Discovery (DX10)
Anno 1404 - Dawn of Discovery
So ever since the first Anno series was launched many years ago, I have been playing this excellent RTS. Heck, I had a ton of fun with the original game series like Anno 1602 and 1701. If you're unfamiliar with the Anno series of games, they have all been (1404 is the 3rd sequel) colony-builders that take place in vast archipelagos filled with pirates, natives, treasures, and rival colonies. Typically, players start with a single ship packed with essential goods with which they colonize a single island, and then need to expand their realm.
With the same principles and philosophy yet more trading dynamics in-game, this series changed a little. Next to that the graphics engine had an overhaul allowing a DX10 code path, brushing up and speeding up things here and there while pertaining really nice image quality.
For our test with Anno 1404 we enable everything and we enable the highest possible setting, and render the game in DirectX 10 mode with 4x Anti-Aliasing enabled. As a result the game is playable up-to 2560x1600 (!)
Again perfect 2-way SLI scaling, and 3-way SLI is cooping with the CPU bottleneck severely.
We test and review the ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II review edition. The graphics card comes with a factory overclock and an updated DirectCU II cooler that has CoolTech fans. That would be two silent 90mm fans.
MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning review
In this review we benchmark the MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning edition. Armed with military class components, an awesome TwinFrozr cooler that is very silent and keeps this GPU chilled down at a cool 60 Degrees C temperature. Next to that is has voltage monitoring points, a reactor core, a secondary BIOS as backup and liquid cooling and well, just so much more. Have a peek at what might be one of the finest GeForce GTX 770 cards available on the market.
